Podcasting is indeed an audio revolution. In this book Dann and Spinelli have extensively mapped this medium through careful analysis and interviews with leading practitioners. In the emerging field of podcast studies this book is a timely contribution that will be useful to both academics and podcast fans alike. * Richard Berry, Senior Lecturer in Radio, University of Sunderland, UK *
In our current frenzied podcast environment, a work like Spinelli and Dann's Podcasting is essential. It anchors a conversation around the form's evolution, and invites dialogue around ever-relevant aspects of the field: where it came from, how it's changing as the industry matures, what sort of content opportunities are inherent in the process, and the impact the medium is having worldwide on vast audiences of listeners. Critical discourse is crucial to sustaining any cultural offering, and Podcasting provides a welcome invitation to listeners, makers, and decision makers in the podcasting field, alike. * Julie Shapiro, Executive Producer of Radiotopia and PRX *
With this book, the authors clearly identify the unique qualities of contemporary podcasting and sketch a thought-provoking portrait of this emerging digital medium. * Tiziano Bonini, Assistant Professor in Media Studies, University of Siena, Italy *
